Judges announce the Best Article Award for the inaugural 2013 Earth Science Technology Showcase. The showcase features 10 articles on current Earth-observing technology development projects, authored by principal investigators from NASA’s Earth Science Technology Office (ESTO).
In a collaboration of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute of Thailand, sensorweb technologies are being used to enhance monitoring of flooding in Thailand. This Thailand Flood Sensorweb utilizes automation techniques to detect flooded areas, alert interested parties, and deliver imagery.
The authors have developed a novel broadband antenna technology that enables remote sensing measurements over the X- to Ka-band microwave spectrum from a single aperture. The antenna technology is integrated with an airborne X- and Ku-band synthetic aperture radar and K-and Ka-band radiometer for measuring the spatial distribution of surface snow.
To reveal multiscale processes from high-resolution, multidimensional Earth science data, we have developed the parallel version of the ensemble empirical model decomposition (PEEMD) method with a three-level parallelism. In this study, we illustrate the performance of the PEEMD in extracting tropical wave components from idealized tropical wave solutions and large-scale environmental flows associated with Hurricane Sandy.
